    Okay, its the season for gift giving. Is someone (or yourself) stocking your humidor with anything good this season? (Or are you stocking up others with something good?) My seasonal gifts are always consumables OPUS-X gift 3 packs for the cigar guys, Neuhaus Liqueur chocolates for the...
  2. Splits & Group Buys
    I was at my local shop (Churchill's in PHX) checking out their Viaje arrivals. One store still had them in the back but let me get some singles. He had an unclaimed box of S&B WMD that were set aside a few months ago for a customer that flaked. I know people get rabid over Viaje so I...

    So, I have the worst allergies in the world. Seriously, I've never met anyone with worse seasonal allergies than me, except maybe my sister. Medicine does almost nothing. High doses of Benedryl helps some, but then I pass out. Since the allergy season has just started, I've started to...
  4. General Pipe Forum
    In the Autumn, as the weather got cooler, we talked about enjoying Latakia and English blends. All winter in the dark coldness I was smoking hearty Lakeland and dark Burley styles. Today in Philly its sunny and in the 50's. I'm thinking its time to pull out some cellared Va/Pers. Or maybe...
  5. Non-Habanos Reviews
    Ordered up a box two weeks ago. Couldn't wait to try one (and gave away a few to friends). Forgot to take pics....too busy enjoying it. Very nice construction. Dark wrapper no large veins. The cifuentes were packed tightly in the box giving them a old feel box press. Toasted the foot...
  6. General Pipe Forum
    I've noticed that when smoking my pipe with congestion or a little bit of a stuffy nose, that I enjoy the smoke in a different light than when i'm "clean". I guess perhaps i'm just plugged up enough to mute those particular bitey notes and ashy tendencies, leaving my senses to discriminate all...

    Hey guys! Normally this would be the time of year I start breaking out my pipe and doing that whole thing. Just something about smoking a pipe; idk it's a winter thing for me. But since I've thrown out my cob, and have taken up this hobby (cigars) seriously, I was wondering what your...

    Just wondering if this applies to others like it does in my household...??? Are there certain foods/meals that you have during certain seasons? With the Fall now upon us my dearest Wife has begun discussing some of my FAVORITE dishes. Tonight she's making one of my all-time favs.... Shrimp...
  9. Cigar Questions
    A quick question...can't seem to find an answer doing a search. I've seen the Partagas Cifuentes seasonal blends advertised. Summer, winter, fall...can anyone tell me what the differences are between say the summer and fall blends? The descriptions of the Julio and Octubre (for example)...
  10. Splits & Group Buys
    Anyone else want these? CI has a pretty good price going right now. I'd only want 10 for me.
  11. Habanos Discussion
    I've searched and found only one comment on a Date code preference related to a certain season or month. I usually just pick the oldest one I can come up with but wonder if say November 06 may be better than the older June 06.. I assume factory codes are more important but while I can figure...

    Was wondering if anyone has tried this beer from dogfish head. I was pickin up some beer today and came across it but didn't get it. I like all the dogfish stuff but im not sure about a fruit beer. http://www.dogfish.com/brewings/Seasonal_Beers/Aprihop/14/index.htm
  13. General Cigar Discussion
    I know what some of you are thinking... "Seasonal cigars... like seasonal beer!". Nope i'm thinking more like Seasonal cigars like some music is seasonal. Do you guys have certain seasons that you like certain cigars better in? Like maybe a Rocky Patel vintage 1990 during fall? Just cause it...
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    This topic may not apply to everyone here. If you keep your cigars in coolers you are pretty much immune to the 20-40% drop in humidity in areas of the country where we need to heat. I experience a dramatic change this time of year in maintenance issues related to humidification. All summer...
  15. Habanos Discussion
    For you folks that purchase by mail, do you have a particular time of year to buy? I have been wondering whether summertime might be a little too warm for cigars stuck during transit in trucks, docks, warehouses, etc. Especially those that travel far distances ;) . Just curious...
  16. General Discussion
    For the last few years, sometime between January and March I get into a huge funk which usually last between 1 and 3 months. This year it seems to be especially bad since I'm also dealing with my dad who is in the final stages of prostate cancer. I'm not having suicidal thoughts or anything...
  17. General Cigar Discussion
    I can't wait for that first real puff of spring to hit. Sitting in the shade of my favorite tree with an ice cold beverage and a cigar. Of course, like the change in seasons I have changes in taste. I switch from whiskey neat to Saphire and tonic with a touch of lime. Similarly, I change...
  18. Cigar Accessory Questions
    I'm not sure if everyone experiences this issue but it's heating season in OH and time for me to make the seasonal change in my cab humidity procedures. During the summer months the office environment is about 55% RH. Keeping the Cab at 65% is a no brainer with beads alone. I rotate...
